Noyade interdite

Humanity follows the Voice's orders. Inserting coins into slots provides the beat. Solitude settles in for good and reigns over the world. But, suddenly, two dreamers cross paths and the battle begins. When a peep-show mermaid stripper encounters a wish-stealing diver, the world around them had better watch out.
